lindsey graham had to say about all of this. >> how could our president be telling the american people weeks after about a protest that never existed? either he's the most detached president in the entire world, not curious at all about what actually happened or this is part of an overall effort by the white house to mislead the american people seven weeks before an election. >> and now there's new information from catherine herridge tonight about the role of mike morrell, the cia's former deputy director and then acting director and how he may have entered into the talking points. let's bring in george will, kierstyn powers, and charles krauthammer. george? >> well, the president who talks incessantly, talks increasingly in a kind of retore kk cotton candy, as when he said to bill o'reilly, if you look at the video of the attack on the compound, you will see that it was not a systematic, well-organized process. well, if you look at any war, any episode, it doesn't look systematic and well organized, it looks like war and chaos. as we have seen, we had a memo sent to all of us by james
cain and lindsey graham. what are they saying? >> basically, wolf, this is about a conversation that secretary kerry had over the weekend at the munich security conference with about 15 congressmen. some of those congressmen, senator mccain and others talked to these journalists and said in the meeting that secretary kerry said the policy was failing. that the u.s. administration needed to do more. the state department came out strong and said listen, he didn't say that. obviously secretary kerry was talking about concern for the situation on the ground in syria, the growing humanitarian situation, growth of extremists on the ground. but he didn't explicitly call for a change in policy. dana bash actually spoke to one of the senators in the room with secretary kerry and said well, it is true that the secretary did not call explicitly for a change in policy. he did say that he was concerned about the situation. he said more needed to be done to help the opposition, that they needed to work more closely with the russians. the russians aren't exactly being helpful. and that they could do more. an
quickly called them job cuts. republican senator lindsey graham joined in, too, on this, tweeting a similar headline, but the white house is cautioning those departures are more the result of worker flexibility to make that choice to leave their jobs and still have health insurance. suzy, with all that out there, who's got it right? >> so, to say that the takeaway from the cbo report is that obamacare is killing 2 million jobs, it's handing out 2 million pink slips, as senate republicans put out in a release is entirely inaccurate. these are not jobs that are being destroyed or dismantled, people being fired because of obamacare. also it is not the case that 2 million people are leaving the workforce, that they are just giving up, stopping work because they are just going to get free government health care, all this sort of free stuff from taxpayers. what's happening is that people are both reducing the number of hours that they are going to work, so they are going to go from full time to part-time workers and there are going to be some people who are going to leave the labor forc
of republicans including mitch mcconnell are facing tea party opposition, if mitch mcconnell wins, if lindsey graham wins, if the others get through safely on those primaries through tea party opposition, i could see the senate maybe more slightly willing to do something. i think what's happening is the republicans are now saying to themselves let's forget the substance of immigration right now. we'll be in a stronger position to deal with it in 2015 because we might win the senate back, and why should we get in the way of our attacks on the president over obamacare and the pace of recovery. let's not complexify our message right now because later we'll be in a stronger position and then able to do something. and that's a hard argument for people like john boehner to counter. he deserves some credit for having those principles that sort of included a path to citizenship. that was a radical move by him. and now he's kind of throwing up his hands. but i have a sneaking suspicion that it's still theoretically possible they would try something after these primaries this summer. >> marimaria, from
that senator lindsey graham did ask general ham what had happened and general ham at one point said? we have thatten othe record though. ham had said. ham didn't go it the president. he went to panetta, his boss. why haven't you gotten panetta in? >> believe me, bill, i wish we had had a host of people in a lot sooner. >> no, no. he is the key. he is the one. put him under oath. he is not in government anymore. can you pull him in. >> i vote for that absolutely. >> well, get it done. >> i glad you asked president directly. >> this is the story. this is it. panetta is it. and nobody has asked him under oath if he told his boss, the president, the commander and chief, that it was a terror attack. if panetta says that, all hell breaks loose. and you guys haven't done it. so, it's a cheap shot obama to complain about him when you guys haven't brought in the guy that the story wide open. and i tried to get it from president obama but he wouldn't answer it. so now i'm asking you, congressman, to get your butt in gear and get your committee to get panetta in there. is that unreasonable? >> no, it's
like june mccain and lindsey graham who were were willinging to hold hands with the white house and try to garner that support, the country is weary but i think anyone that has looked at the white house that presidents are always. >> first of all, i think they would argue that they made more progress on chemical weapons than they would have had they gone in to intervene. >> we'll never know. >> the question isn't walking and chewing gum at the same time. the question is, what is a policy that that will work here. that is a complicated issue. >> but you were saying that people wanted to focus on the economy. people expect him to focus on the economy. >> i'm saying it's a matter of public -- it's a matter of how he spends his time in public in front of the camera, people are interested in him focusing on the economy. i have no doubt he's spending a lot of time on issue of syria. i don't think it's front of mind for the american people. >> the thing with all these foreign policy issues as we all know, they can quickly become front of mind. one of the big concerns you're hearing from both t
of her quick wit. at the hearing on her confirmation, senator lindsey graham asked whether she thought miranda warnings should be given to terrorists. the infamous christmas day underwear bomber, for example. the senator asked her, where were you on christmas day? it would be inappropriate to address an open question that might one day come before the board. the senator persisted. i just asked where you were on christmas. elena's response, senator, like all jews, i was probably in a chinese restaurant. [laughter] [applause] with enormous pleasure, i invite you to join me in welcoming justice elena kagan to the podium. [applause] >> thank you, thank you. sit down. justice ginsburg deserves a standing o, i have not been anything yet. thank you, justice ginsburg for that wonderful introduction. i think christmas day story is going to follow me every place i go. there is nothing i will never write for the u.s. supreme court that is going to be so much quoted as that line. i'm still going to try. thank you so much to the new york state bar association for having me. it is an honor to be her
, led by john mccain and lindsey graham, just caved into obama on the issue about appointments on the nlrb. it's unbelievable, this paying off of your connies -- constituencies. >> remember when the president said this? >> shovel-ready was not as shovel ready as we expected. >> even the president joked that the stimulus didn't go as planned, but five years after signing that near live $800 billion bill, the obama administration is trying to put a positive spin on things, to ed henry at the white house with the latest positive spin. ed? go for it. >> what the house is saying today is, look, unemployment has come down. there's been economic growth for many months now since the stimulus was enacted into law. they believe those are signs of hope in the economy and that the president stopped the nation from falling into an economic depression, something worse than the recession that we actually faced. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell clear today in charging that the president fell well short of that promise, you'll remember, when the signed the stimulus into law that 3.5 mil
